Drawing my Prayers

A few weeks ago, our church hosted a guest speaker who came to teach on the subject of prayer.  His powerful message really impacted our church.  Many, myself included, made commitments to spend more time in prayer.

I've kept prayer journals throughout the years and found them beneficial in keeping me focused and and in keeping a record of my prayers.  I knew I wanted to begin something similar.  After all, with eight children I am often interrupted during my prayer time and lose focus easily with so many distractions.  That's when I had the idea to draw my prayers.

I wanted to be able to do a task that I would keep me focused on my prayer, but that I could stop when I needed to and come back to whenever.  I looked online for resources thinking surely someone had thought of this idea before, but found very little.  So, I just jumped right in...

This picture (above) I drew one day while I was just praising God for His creation.

Eventually, (I don't even think it was the same day), I began praying for husband and began doodling on the same page.  

This went on for a few days.  We were praying through a particular period asking for God's provision and that Chad would have victory at work.

Another day, I was praying that God would fill my cup and praying that I would exhibit the fruit of the Spirit.

And here I was responding to a verse that God had used to speak to me that day.

Once again I'm linking up to "Blogging through the Alphabet".  It's the letter 'D' this week, so check out Marcy's post and link up yourself!

  1. Wow! That is impressive.

    I have tried doodled while praying at times but it looks more like a 3 year old drew it. Ha!

  2. These are lovely! I'm inspired to try this for myself, and especially for my daughter after we read our daily passage. She likes to draw and this might be a more natural way for her to respond to the Word. Thanks so much!

  3. I frequently doodle Scripture or what I'm learning as I study the Bible. Just wish my doodles were as pretty as yours! You're amazing!

  4. Beautiful drawings, and beautiful prayers.
